The Kansas City Chiefs are trailing the Green Bay Packers, 21-17, as both teams wrap up the preseason at Arrowhead Stadium on Thursday night.
The Chiefs started fast as rookie safety Armani Watts picked off Packers' quarterback DeShone Kizer on just the third play of the game - marking Watts' second takeaway of the preseason.
The turnover positioned quarterback Chad Henne and the Chiefs' offense at midfield for their initial drive and they took advantage, finding the end zone on a 3-yard pass from Henne to tight end Demetrius Harris.
Henne completed 4-of-5 passes for 33 yards and the score in his only drive of work before giving way to veteran quarterback Matt McGloin for the remainder of the half, who connected on 10 of his 18 attempts for 127 yards, an interception and a touchdown.
McGloin's score – a 7-yard pass to rookie tailback Darrel Williams – came on the heels of a 62-yard completion to wide receiver Byron Pringle, who demonstrated the ability that helped the rookie lead the nation in yards-per-catch last season at nearby Kansas State.
The Packers answered Kansas City's early score with three scoring drives of their own, as Kizer and quarterback Tim Boyle each tossed a touchdown, before McGloin connected with Williams to narrow the deficit.
